" today. do we have the graphic. in the areas he does control, obama has to talk less about hurdles he faces and more forcefully about what he's going to get. where does he go now? where can he move on this stuff? >> think it's hard for him to move. i love e.j. he's a genuine friend not one of those people you say is your friend. he's a rell frieal friend. i agree with him all the time. we're beating on this president when you have to go back to that pat toomey quote go guns that shows liberal fantasies about how the president has to get back in the game, be tougher, make better deals, it is not going to work. he's really got people who are determined to see him fail. i do agree with the tone, however. the tone of late has been little wi whinier than we would like to hear. in terms of what he can do, it's hard. >> there seems to be this sort of mindset from him, you said whining but this sort of i'm done with it. you see the way the people treat me. what am i supposed to do? that's not good for democrats to have that opinion in 2013. >> this is always been something of his approach. he

[laughter] >> i'm not. [laughter] a couple questions on national security. on syria, you said that the red line was not just about chemical weapons being used but being spread, and it was a game changer, seemed cut and dry. and now your administration seems to be suggesting that line is not clear. do you risk u.s. credibility if you don't take military action? and then on benghazi, there are some survivors of that terror
re-talking about? are we talking about the barack obama that his -- the administration raised the fee for citizenship application to get back down again? don't get me started. i can go low sides on this because these politicians, that's my point, have moved them play this game like checkers or chess when it suits their interest in suits their politics. it's not just john mccain. >> i will tell what barack obama we are talking about. we are talking about the president obama that just won a re-election with 71% of the latino vote and understands there is a dead and we will not let him off the puck. i think it's a president obama who no longer has realm and manual as a chief of staff telling him it's too politically costly for you to do this in your first term. i think the president barack obama who wants a legacy and understand that this can be a major point for his legacy. to the point where he is stepping back. the question you asked antonio, if president obama had done what he said he was going to do and luis knows this and crossed his own legislation on congress to say here is my bi
days. >> wow. that's too much. thanks. let's go now to washington, and president obama in his weekly address today talking about those big sequester cuts and how congress quickly moved to bring furloughed air traffic controllers back on the job. the furloughs by the faa had caused airport delays across this country. well, here's the president's take today. >> this week, the sequester hurt travelers who were stuck for hours in airports and on planes and arightly frustrated by it. and maybe because they fly home each weekend the members of congress who insisted on these cuts finally realized that they actually apply to them, too. >> nbc's white house correspondent kristen welker is at the white house for us. with a good saturday morning to you, kristen. i know the white house has been calling this a band-aid since the senate passed it on thursday night. so, will the president sign it once it hits his desk? >> hey, good morning, alex. and welcome to d.c. always great to have you here. you know, despite calling it a band-aid he is expected to sign this legislation in to law. and it stand
with the president tonight. >> as president obama continued to trike to talk up an economic resurgence as the focus of his three-day trip south of border. >> let's do more to expand trade and commerce that creates good jobs. >> some better than expected news north of the border with the labor department reporting the unemployment raid dropped to 7.5%, the lowest level in five years, amid signs more people were finding jobs. in addition to april's gains of 165,000 new jobs, the government revised its february and march numbers upward, by a total of 114,000 jobs. >> we are gaining jobs, over 160,000 new jobs. unemployment has ticked down. that's good news. >> rick: still there were major warning signs the economy is struggling. the manufacturing structure created not a single job. construction employment fell for the first time in a year. the commerce department says manufacturing jobs fell. many are unable to find jobs. >> we need to have more people working, more taxpayers. not raising taxes. we could do it if not for that this drag of the health care law. >> rick: they said it's time toned the se
, for me, was so powerful during the election was the time when obama actually had to come out and talk explicitly about race. because one of the things -- >> he did it here if philadelphia. >> he did it right here in philadelphia. one of the ironies, there's so many ironies in our contemporary political moment, but one of the most powerful ones is the first black president is the one who can talk the least about race. it's the third, fourth and fifth rail for that -- i mean, there's something about race that he knows he can't discuss, and part of what he tried to do in that moment at least was to say let me say something th think is going to bring people together that's forward thinking, and then hopefully i'll never have to bring it up again. and there's something about that, i think, in some ways that is quintessential paranoia. the idea is americans are so fatigued about race, they're so resistant to thinking about racial inclusion that to even bring up the idea of race too often means folks are going to disqualify you from the highest office in the land. you're not going to be a pr
the first nba player to come out of the closet. a phone call from president obama. wonder what they talked about. great to see you. it is the "full court press" here on tuesday april 30. good to have you with us today. we've got lots and lots to talk about. lots that you're going to want to jump in and express your point of view about. give us a call at 1-866-55-press. that's our toll free number. join us on twitter at bpshow or on facebook at can't do it alone. takes a village. and so we need to reach out for help here and here's a -- good friend who does the same thing three hours every day just like i do. she does it on p.o.t.u.s. channel on sirius x.m. julie mason joining us as a "friend of bill." >> bill, i'm here to help. >> bill: thank you, thank you. and you know, that's a lot of help when you have three hours of your own and you still give us one hour. >> oh, whatever you need, bill. whatever you want. >> bill: how is it going? you look dapper at the white house correspondents' dinner. >> so did you bill, thank you very much. >> bill: we had a good time
republicans don't want to give president obama any sort of victory? here to talk aboutt associated editor for the hill newspaper amy stoddard former national spokesman for the white house, president obama's white house tommy vetor and former adviser to mitt romney's presidential campaign kevin madden. kevin, not surprising, i'm going to start with you. >> really? >> even though 80%, 90% of the country supports this legislation and it was up for a vote, toomey is suggesting although i understand he has back tracked a little since that statement, suggesting it really just came down to republicans didn't want to give obama a victory. >> look. the kind of politics you see in washington, d.c. is absurd. as sure as dogs will bark in a tunnel politicians in washington, d.c. are going to play politics. this did come down to policy in the minds of many opposed to the bill. some folks said that we're proponents, believed it was good policy and those opposed believed it was bad policy. at the heart of a lot of opposition on an issue that is so important like the second amendment to many people is th
. you know the message is okay, i will cross the red line that president barack obama of the united states keeps talking about. why does the u.s. say there is a read line on these issues? tens of thousands have been killed in the war. why a red line on this. >>. >> because if there was an incident or a massive attack, chemical weapons are used and 5,000 people die, or even 200 or 400 or 600 people die, and this is the first recognized use of chemical weapons against a civilian population in a decade and half, and there is no response, then you are encouraging every regime in the world that what is these horrible weapons to use them. this is the danger. that president, because he put this red line out there, could make himself look weak. could make the united states look weak. and could encourage others to use these things. >> right. >> that if you use the weapons and there is no response, then assad could feel em boldened. i can do this more and more. maybe his trial balloon, if you will. seems ridiculous to use a trial balloon like that. imagine, just to make an acorn size one and
's what president obama is talking about. that's why we'll continue to work with congress to pursue the proposal the president put forward in his budget, a proposal that once again is fully paid for. today's report emphasizes that when it comes to early education, quality does matter. and that quality means more than just learning numbers and the abcs. it means insuring kids get the nutrition and preventive care they need to stay healthy, building social and emotional skills, engaging parents to headache -- to make sure they're nurturing their children's development. over the last four years, we've pursued an historic effort to raise the bar on quality in early education, and we've had unprecedented and incredible coordination and collaboration with the department of education. that includes the race to the top early learning challenge, and it also includes a range of efforts in the head start program including sharing best practices on training and curriculum and making sure that funding competition goes to the strongest centers. so as in this report -- as this report shows, we hav

are right, president obama signed it. but then he voted for it. he couldn't have signed it if he hadn't first voted for it. they watched the sequester kick in. we talked about this. they watched cuts to headstart. they didn't do anything about it. kids thrown out of headstart. so what? was their attitude. they watched cuts to food stamps. didn't do anything. cuts to meals on wheels and watched teachers and first responders and cops and fire fighters getting fired by many cities and counties. they didn't do anything. but cuts in the penta goodeon or military didn't do anything. but when air traffic controllers were furloughed and the very first day of the furlough there were flight delays of up to two hours in some major airports and members of congress knew they had to go home for the weekend for another 10-daybreak, which they don't deserve and they might have to wait around the airport for an hour, boy, they got their ass in gear. on thursday the senate in one day passed a bill carving out an exception to the sequester for the faa so they can put all ai

others were talking about immigration. you and dennis miller were discussing my remarks a day or two later and mr. miller was complaining, as i recall it, that president obama had about called it terrorism on the first day. he waited until the second day. that was an appropriate criticism given his viewpoint of the president. the notion you suspend discussion of important issues in face of tragedy, i do not accept. but i did begin the interview with my feeling of sadness and condolences for people. >> bill: here is why it might be inappropriate. because when you say that look, no tax cut would help this situation, you basically polarizing americans who want lower taxes, smaller government. but in a time like this, in boston, and you're from boston, i wanted to see -- i called for on the air all americans to come together. all right? not only to support the grieving families -- grieving families but to show the world we're a united front. and you are not going to come in here to our house and intimidate us. >> bill: i agree. >> bill: by your rhetoric, you're dividing people 24 hours a

on weapons of mass destruction. while president obama seems to have learned that lesson, many in the press and congress are pushing hard and fast for military intervention in syria. we will talk about what that would actually mean in a bit. first i want to share the three awesomist things on the internet today. beginning with a cool feature from the new york times. yes, scott fitzgerald novel, coming up with a film and the book is currently topping the amazon best seller list. the marketing of the book has the gatsby lovers up in arms. it is probably a good thing he is not around to see the film. barnes & noble will sell both editions and wal-mart will only sell the book with leo on the cover. perhaps that book seller just needs a reminder of last year's best seller. second awesomist thing -- by the way, that cover is awesome. second thing, a twitter trend that reached a whole new level. as salon puts it, anything and everything that is even the slightest potential to become a mean will get its own twitter account. case in point, clint eastwood's rnc speech to an empty chair. when senator
